[rabbitmq-discuss] Problem with Installing RabbitMQ Server 2.5.1

Hi, Matthew: 

On OS X, /var/lib is probably owned by root so if you're firing up sbin/rabbitmq-server as your own user account you'll probably get stiff-armed in this way. Try again with 'sudo' and you should be in fine shape. 

Best regards,

Subject: [rabbitmq-discuss] Problem with Installing RabbitMQ Server 2.5.1 


I am trying to get a working version of RabbitMQ up and running on my Mac OSX with the generic Unix version. However, I get the following error when I try to start up the server: 

Archon:rabbitmq_server-2.5.0 matthew$ sbin/rabbitmq-server 
Activating RabbitMQ plugins ... 
ERROR: Could not create dir /var/lib/rabbitmq/mnesia/rabbit at Archon-plugins-expand (enoent) 

I have the most recent version of Erlang installed on my machine. I think this may be some sort of read/write permissions problem, but I don't quite know how to fix it. Please help!
